Our next meeting will be held virtually via Zoom on Wednesday, October 7, 2020, at 7:00 pm.
Our guest speaker for the evening is Nanne Kennedy of Meadowcroft Farm in Washington, ME. Nanne raises sheep which she breeds for extreme softness. As a hand-spinner for 30 years, she adds other local fibers and integrates her superfine wool with color and details that emulate moments in nature. Nanne has innovated a solar dye system using food grade dyes that are fixed in seawater and food grade acid, instead of chemical salts and acid, which gives the yarns watery colors as soft as the wool itself.
Nanne sells her Seacolors yarns, hand knit sweaters and hand woven blankets. She is also a sustainable farmer committed to creating viable agricultural models that support both economics and ecologies. She plans to give us a virtual tour of her farm and talk about what makes her fiber products so unique.
Membership is $25 a year. Guests are welcome to attend the program for a $10 charge.
